Well Mrs. Mason I miss you and all your loving kindness .You will forever be in my heart cause you touched me and I miss you Dear Friend..

Mom, I can't stop thinking about you today. It's been three years and I still hear your voice. How odd. And I know that you are still near me...I can feel you at the oddest times and sense your presence but how I long to just hold your hand or caress your hair. You are truly missed. I tried my best to be a good daughter to you everyday. Sometimes I succeeded and sometimes I failed and yet you loved me still. Mom, I slipped a note into your resting place and I have no idea what it says...I was in another place mentally that day but I know somewhere in there I wrote, I LOVE YOU. And I always will. You are always with me. And today I need to release this sorrow and exchange it for happiness. You would want that for me. Your love was light but this burden of grief too heavy. So I pray you would whisper in God's ear...lighten the load. I love you.

My Darling Mother...my heart aches with the memory of you and though the sadness is always just beneath the surface, I remember you with joy and thanksgiving. You were an awesome mom. The absolute best. I wish you a Happy Birthday in Heaven and I long for just one more time to kiss your cheek and stroke your hair. I hold every moment that we spent together as precious and dear. I will always love you. Happy Birthday, Dear Momma. Love always, Lisa

Momma, I've been really missing you these last few days. I remember so much and I've just been feeling kinda low thinking about you. I know you wouldn't want me to feel this way. You were, and still are, my heart. I love you.

Dearest Mother, As I sit here and think and remember, I remember you with nothing but love and adoration. You are missed so much by all of us. My heart aches to call you, hear the sound of your voice. You were always so wise. I'm sure Solomon's asking you questions right now. :) Much love Mommy, Lisa

Hey Mom...I'm thinking of you as always. You were my best friend and I miss you. I just moved about 6 weeks ago and I imagine you seeing my new home and sharing decorating ideas with me. I know you'd like the house and be so happy for me. I wish you could see it. And I wish you could see Danielle's baby. She'll be 2 in January and getting to be such a big girl. I love you, Mom.

My dear sweet Mommy...how I miss you. You will forever be with me. I still hear your voice in my head. I see you sitting at the table with a glass of Pepsi and a puzzle book, doing what you do best...solving problems. I need to talk to you. Desperately. I miss you.

Dear friend I know you lost the fight but you didn't lose the BATTLE faithful servant. JOHN 5;24 tell me so.

To the Mason children - My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I understand what you are going through but remain strong in your faith. I am sorry that I cannot be with you but know that I am there in spirit and if you need anything I am here. Your mom was special to me.

My heart, thoughts and prayers have been with Lisa and other members of Mrs. Velma's family during this time of sadness. This is the first time I have seen her picture, and I can immediately tell what a kind and sweet person she was. Love, Melba Wooten :)

Dear Momma, I can't believe that we lost you. You were the glue that held us together and kept our feet on solid ground. The overwhelming sadness I feel is beyond my comprehension. Thank you for being the first to love me...you did it well. I love you back. Lisa
